How powerful is Vader from the movies?

Force Choke: Vader has used this ability many times in the first three movies. It requires him to think of an invisible hand around someone's throat. However, most of the time this power cannot kill and results in vibration of the throat and coughing. Also, although the hand is invisible the victim can clutch at their throats and break the grip. Also, this power can take a long time to become effective.
Vader can use this to lift small objects or levitate himself.
Vader can use his advanced strength to overcome opponents.

Most powerful force ability is the force choke. The choke is a ability that causes little pain to the throats of victims and appears as if the throat is dancing. The victim will have a little more difficulty breathing but nothing dangerous and the victim can break the grip by prying off the invisible hand placed on their neck. Also gives the victim the opportunity to attack the user as they will waist so much of their energy on this power leaving them drained. Overall, not dangerous and can be broken by getting off the hand.

We should take a look at the force choke! It most of the time can do little more than be an annoyance as it casually dosen't have the power to snap a neck. Powerful force users can kill but requires great focus and some victims can kill the user while being strangled and even then sometimes cannot snap a neck. The force choke is just annoying and cannot really kill and doesn't usually have the power to harm the victims.

The force choke involves the user to use all their power to constrict the throat in which will cause he or she to cough and fight for air attempting to break this grip and stop the slight pain. Most of the time the victim's neck will be fine and will break this grip. That is why most sith don't use it in battle as it can be broken and can't even hurt the victim what so ever.

Darth Sidious Sheev Palpatine (also known by his Sith identity Darth Sidious and publicly as Senator Palpatine, then Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and later Emperor Palpatine) is a fictional character and one of the primary antagonists of the Star Wars franchise, mainly portrayed by Ian McDiarmid.

Darth Sidious number 10? This list is Dumb!

Took over whole galaxy

He's 1 or 2 with yoda

I like his power lighting strike

Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

Won against anakin, maul, and greivous

Obi won taught Luke sky walker and anakin sky walker and a few youngster he beat darth Vader count dooku darth maul general grievous and lots more sih lords he killed himself while fighting darthvader

Anakin Skywalker Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He appears in the original trilogy as a main and pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel trilogy.

The chosen one

Mace Windu Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

He is such a bosss! He created Vaapad, and mastered ALL SEVEN styles of lightsaber combat. Not only is he the bestn lightsaber duelist of all time, he is also an EXTREMELY powerful force user who sould use the force crush, which Yoda couldn't. He beat palpatine/ sidious in a duel and was the second most senior member of the Jedi Council, only after master Yoda. He also lead the 212 jedi in the Battle of Geonosis, and... KILLED JANGO FETT, one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy, who is very, very famously known for killing MANY, MANY Jedi. Plus, Obi Wan failed to defeat him. Mace Windu should be higher than Dooku, Luke, Vader and Obi wan.

He's awesome. Funny how he's the only character to have a purple lightsaber.

Lol number 8? he beat sidious fair and square he should take sidious spot

Can use dark side against you.

Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

Old Luke Skywalker is the most powerful person in Star Wars. Period. Not only was he able to beat Darth Vader when he was YOUNG, but he has accomplished more feats than any other Jedi in the star wars universe. He is feared by the entire First Order and even is capable of force lightning. He conjured up a ghost of himself to challenge Kylo Ren across the GALAXY. He can defeat Vader, Sidious, Yoda, Rey, and anyone else that challenges him.

No question about this one. George Lucas himself said that Luke was the most powerful jedi who ever lived. End of discussion!

Number 8? Really? George Lucas said himself that Luke is the most Powerful

George Lucas said he is the most powerful Jedi of all time

Darth Bane Darth Bane is a legendary Sith from Star Wars. Darth Bane was one of the greatest Sith lords who ever lived in the Star Wars universe. Darth Bane's greatest accomplishment was creating the Rule of Two, making the Sith a secretive order with one master and one apprentice. The apprentice would learn everything more.

The Contenders

Count Dooku Count Dooku of Serenno, from the House of Dooku is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise, appearing in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as a primary and minor antagonist respectively. He was portrayed by Christopher Lee and more.

He was personally selected by Yoda because Yoda sensed how powerful he was and that no-other Jedi could teach him.

But had power failure and that must have hurt him

Lol he’s very powerful.

SARUMAN! He's more powerful than Obi wan

Darth Nihilus

Able to destroy all life on planets

He is can kill planets.

Darth Revan Revan is a fictional character in BioWare's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game. The character may be either male or female, though Revan is canonically male and follows the game's light-side path. He also has his own Old Republic book in which he is a male human, turned Jedi, and turned more.

Darth Revan could breath Luke Skywalker, obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader easily.

He should be number one because is the strongest person on this list.

He should be at least 15. This list is silly

Could use light and dark side

Darth Malgus
General Grievous General Grievous is a fictional character and antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He served as the Supreme Commander of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Droid Armies during the Clone Wars.

Grievous is awesome! His four lightsabers make him a powerful enemy.

If you know well controlled Lightsaber do not have to fear it, but if you do not - screwed - nothing escapes.

Absolute legend

Padme Amidala Padmé Amidala is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in the prequel trilogy portrayed by actress Natalie Portman.

Ranking Padme above a skilled Jedi is silly, but she's still impressive. And in peak condition. She's been able to fall hundreds of feet from a gunship, while already being scratched by a cat creature. And although she was incapacitated for about a minute, she had no bruises or broken bones. A Clone Trooper wearing armor designed to absorb energy was incapacitated for about the same time. Able to kick heads off of droids, who are made of metal. Outpace droids and destroy them before they can react. Heal from a big scratch in one day without scarring. Force choked by Anakin, while pregnant and remain in perfect health. Leap dozens of feet into the air. Withstand a blow from a creature that could decimate pillars with only superficial marks on her skin. Casually dodge blaster bolts. React and keep up with Jedi during the Battle of Geonosis without fatigue. While no force user, Padme shouldn't be underestimated.

One of the more durable star wars characters, she fell from a spaceship around 100 feet and was only stunned for a few minutes and she had no scratches or bruises and was seemingly unharmed. She also took hits from Nexu which could take out droids with a single swipe and push over pillars, and she sustained minor injuries from it. Padme could take Leia's hits all day.

She was so beautiful which became a tool in manipulation. She also is arguably superhuman physically able to drop from great heights without no sign of injury or fatigue making her one of the most durable as well as beating anakin in an wrestling match and surviving a bloodlusted Anakin's force choke while pregnant. She also does not have the small stature of Leia as she stands over 6 inches taller than Leia as well as having a larger and more feminine build.

While she isn't quite as beautiful as her daughter she is still an attractive woman who can use her beauty along with her intellect to manipulate nearly everybody! Although Leia is stronger Padme is more durable and extremely hard to harm and is arguably superhuman as she has survived falls, hits from large breasts and force chokes from bloodlusted force users.

Admiral Motti

Admiral Motti was the stockiest man in the galaxy, and could have ruled the Empire if he really desired to. Tarkin and Motti started to grapple, the two briefly struggled but Motti was stronger, not only was he much bigger and taller, his bones were stronger making him stronger. Tarkin was pushed on the ground, Motti now was on top of him about to punch him. Tarkin gauged at Motti's eyes, saving his life for the moment, until Motti lifted up Tarkin and threw him against the ground once again on the ground. Tarkin tried but he could not get the young man off, Motti had a warrior's build being 6'5 and over 220 lbs of muscle. Tarkin heard his bones crack as Motti started choking Tarkin until finally killing him. Motti went to Vader as Vader choked him, Motti started gasping for 10 minutes before clobbering Vader with his superior frame. Motti was choked by the Emperor for 40 minutes until being durable enough to survive it and killing the emperor. Motti now ruled the Empire, the end.

While Motti can't dish out tremendous amounts of damage he can take it. Can Motti survive the force push, yes and the choke as well. In the choke scene one can see an angry Vader attempt to choke Motti in which results in an struggle with Motti at first taking the choke with no hand up to clutch due to the fact Vader's choke was so weak. However Motti was getting annoyed by it so he put an hand up to his throat to prye off Vader's grip until Tarkin thought it was childish. Vader had failed in many ways with first being making himself look immature, and second being that Motti knew the extent of his abilities, and knew that his throat could withstand Vader's grip. What people forget is that Vader is not an op character but rather an armored old man who has a fetish for choking people with the force. Case closed Motti won

What makes him so great is his sassy, strong and sarcastic personality and when he insulted Vader which caused him to telekineticley choke by Vader's power. However Motti clutched at his throat and trying his best to tug off Vader's powerful grip. It was working ever so slowly and he managed to get a few breaths as Vader said I find your lack of faith disturbing and the two continued their confrontation before Vader released him at Tarkin's command. One thing was certain. Vader although powerful couldn't have killed Motti as the choke is not simply powerful enough to do the deed.

He was in one of the best scenes in one of the greatest films ever. He didn't care about the force and spoke up to Vader anyways before immaturely being cut off by Vader with an powerful force choke as Vader stated "I find your lack of faith disturbing" before Tarkin interfered after witnessing the long struggle between the young man and the cyborg and thinking Vader of being immature. Not only did Motti survive he did so in front of everyone embarrassing Vader who claimed to be god like in power when he was struggling to choke an officer.

Darth Maul Darth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber.

Lower than a droid he can slice in half

His debut was in 2015's Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Ren's real identity is Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. He was trained more.

Kylo is very underrated and is PRETTY good. However, his abiliteies are no match for at least 38 jedi and 44 sith, and even boba or jangon could take hi down... with help, of course!

Rey Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's more.

Plo Koon

Didn't plo look beat Yoda? He should be 1. - Unnamed Google User Remade

Plo Koon was the only Jedi to defeat Yoda, he should be higher

Darth Vitate

He manipulated glactic affairs for 1500 years and ruled the galaxy he was only defeated with a glactic wide rebbelllion at the age of ten he striped sith lord dramath of his power and mind

Mara Jade Skywalker Mara Jade Skywalker is a character in the Star Wars universe. She originally served as The Emperor's Hand to Emperor Palpatine during the reign of the Galactic Empire. After the Emperor's death, Mara Jade went on to become a smuggler. Later, she became a Jedi, and eventually married Luke Skywalker. more.

While not matching the crazy raw power of her husband Luke and his family such as his father and sister she was still an extremely powerful being. She still contended with Cadeus and arguably would have killed him had she not been distracted. She also has good durability feats like being force choked by powerful beings, stabbed, and thrown through walls and pillars while always getting back up. I will say that she has more raw power than suit Vader and was easily the better duelist than him. I will argue that she is one of the best duelist of all time. She is also nearly Op in power only being weaker to members of the Skywalker family by blood or yoda or palp.

Luke's beloved wife is one of the most powerful force weilders ever to live. She was best known for her extreme durability, in which she was able to survive explosions stabs and force chokes.

One of the most powerful force users ever. The red hair beauty is capable of taking in what she can dish, giving her superhuman durability.

Very powerful, and extremely durable!
